Being the longest running Sikh conference in the US, Lalkaar is one of a kind. It creates a platform where difficult, thought provoking, and inspirational conversations. This year we will focus our attentions towards:
Building Begampura:Confronting Caste.
Our Sikh youth come together and create a forum in which these conversations flourish as we expand on and openly discuss issues that affect us as individuals and as a greater Panth. What brings our Sikh youth back to Lalkaar year after year since 2000? Now into its 17th year, the longevity of the conference speaks for itself. Join us as we continue these vital conversations.
This platform takes courageous and passionate individuals to contribute to its success. Apart from the great effort and dedication needed in order to plan each logistical detail, structural workings, content, and so much more, there takes immense dedication in carrying the Conference through on the crucial 3 days of valuable conversations.
